to romney but in semi quasi defense of romney one mistake that obama made in the 2008 campaign is he said he was going to change the tone in washington. and every president says that. but the president does vice president the power to change the tone in washington. it takes two to consummate this tango, and obama tried. obama tried in many ways and at many different times as you know, the stimulus was more than one-third tax cuts he adopted a republican ideas for his health care reform. he went to republicans many times and said what will it take to get you to compromise with me on this bill and other bills, and he got no votes at all. so the republican's position is disrupt, be destructive, watch things fall apart, and then point their finger at him. >> jennifer: i'm curious what you think -- i have this theory that -- again, i could be all wet, but in the theme of hurricane sandy that bloomberg and chris christie who both need now significant investments to shore up their infrastructure to make sure these rolling storms which this won't be the last one since climate ch
of defense is correct we are doing quarterbacking. if they would tell us more we would quit our monday morning quarterbacking. he didn't have the awareness to commit forces, look he had the situational awareness that the embassy was being attacked -- the consulate was being attacked in benghazi and should have had aircraft over there as soon as possible. john mccain is correct, they didn't have an alert status. we still could have gotten airplanes were armed or not over the consulate annex within probably a couple hours. we should have done that. we didn't even try. we didn't do anything. that is the very disturbing thing. we should have had alert aircraft. first we should have had a global hawk over benghazi and tripoli on 9/11 the anniversary. they announced the day before that we should take radical islamists should take advantage and defeat the americans because they killed binlibbi in afghanistan. we should have had intelligence surveillance and assets right over libya. >> jamie: you are saying we should have begun the operation to protect everyone even before 9/11. we had enough
? >> reporter: they've got a plan for that, too, doreen. the department of defense will have trucks outside polling places around new jersey where there is no power. so you'll go to your regular polling place, if it doesn't have power, you'll see a truck that will say, vote here and you'll fill out a paper ballot. mail-in voting has also been extended. they've asked county clerks to remain open saturday and sunday and you'll be able to do a mail-in ballot all the way up through tuesday. >> thank you, jim rosenfield, reporting live from new jersey. >>> workers in venice, italy, to stop the worst flooding there in two years. tourists are wading through thigh-high water today. high tides have left about 60% of that city under water. the water levels are now about 4 1/2 feet above normal. crews are building movable levees to protect venice from high tides in the future. but those levees won't be finished until year 2014. >> that's an incredible sight. is that storm related? or is that -- >> i haven't looked at the weather over there, but you're talking about 4 1/2 feet above high tide, that's q
romney's allies went on television in california, they wouldn't be inclined to play defense there. they feel a little bit of vulnerability in those states. and again, if you take the non-battlegrounds, expand the map a little bit to include pennsylvania, minnesota, and maybe michigan, it's a much different calculation. >> karl rove is going to be putting up ads in pennsylvania now, the president is putting up ads in pennsylvania now. >> yep. >> suddenly the keystone state is the final week out up for grabs. why? not up for grabs yet, the polls show it close. but both sides realize that it's not safe anymore. >> what's the big deal to last week, we have enough money to go there. it's not the money on television, that's not nothing, it's the candidate's time, joe biden going to scranton. i suspect if things keep on the current trajectory, the president might have to go to pennsylvania, bill clinton might have to be there repeatedly. every day they're spending in pennsylvania is a day they're not spending in ohio. the republicans believe, not just rove's group, but some of the others
doubt it. >> secretary of defense. >> come on, are you kidding me?e christie is a little peeved at the, shall we say the selection process for the vice presidential nominee on the republican ticket. >> he said he didn't want t did you want to be offered it? i think -- >> i'm 23409 -- not going to argue that. >> christie endorsed the president, and toyou put that together, and add in d colin powell, who has had a good week for people still sitting on the fence to see opwhat opinion leaders are thinking. >> let's see if i can climate change, that's right, ght. >> part of learning from this is the recognition that climate change is a reality, extreme ather is a reality, a reality that we are vulnerle. >> does hurrice sandy alter opinion, pat, or do you still contend, stubbornly , and some would sarrstupidly that glop climate change is a hoax, at climate change is a hoax? >> the idea atthat these characters know exactly whatth caused this storm is an as far , they are riding their hobby horse, bringing it out every time there is a natural disaster. why would they -- >> let him in. >> why w
but i want to say something in defense of the hospital. and in the interest of full disclosure i had a loved one in nyu hospital and that is an excellent hospital. the staff, everybody is absolutely wonderful hospital. >> none of this is about the level of care and i know the staff and nurses are doing an unbelievable job. i'm talking about the system and the infrastructure. >> the infrastructure is set up, the reason why the generators and the oil and everything is in the basement to keep it going because new york has a history of blackouts but the blackout doesn't come in the hospital through the river. it happens through the coned system and the systems were flut so the hospitals keep going and they have. nobody has experienced this, as he said, before. but this is -- what i want to point out is that when you say it is unprecedented, it may be unprecedented but when he says it is unprecedented but it is going to set the precedent because this is what we will see here on out. unless we are welcome willing -- you said you want to talk about this climate, climate change and global wa
with what mr. gregg said. the natural resources defense council ranked two of the beaches among best in the country for two years in a row. >> do have any advice on how to deal with these issues in the state? >> one of the students is my daughter. she is interested in these issues. i think delaware is a tremendous place. we have beautiful places, a beautiful environment and we have to work hard to make sure we're protecting that. i think a great environment is a bonus in terms of economic development. gov. peterson past the coastal zone act. people thought that was an economic -- it was an anti-jobs. it turned out to be the opposite. because we have such a beautiful delaware bay, businesses want to be here. that is why we're fake -- focused on the bayshore initiative. one of the objections i have is the thing of the power plant in the coastal zone. the pollutants are sulfur trade we have done is we have waived the requirement to put that manufacturing facility in the coastal zone. we did it under some crazy theory that this was great energy. i would say that jack -- let's follow the
in florida today. may say something about this defensiveness in that state which he needs. the president is doing his job and happens to be doing his job who is romneys's biggest surrogates, one of the supporters who spent so much time being critical of president obama but not in the last few days. he has swung his phrases to such an extent people beyond new jersey have to be taking notice. this is the power of the federal government. this is a big government moment, which is not exactly in keeping with mitt romney's message about cutting government way back. folks in new jersey as ron allen said, what they need is federal money to not only clean up initially, have their needs met in the short term, but there's this question of rebuilding. it was governor christie who said we have to get the army corps of engineers in here, think about restructuring and building differently. this becomes a real infrastructure issue which is something the president has talked about on the campaign trail. >> in fact, chris christie, so critical of the president, really sharply, painfully critical in appear
. because if, indeed, you cut income tax rates by 20%, and you boost defense spending, you've got to -- essentially, you've got to cut discretionary sending, if you're not going to add to the deficit, by a draconian level. you've got to cut it by like 40%, including fema. so, it's impossible to square what we -- again, what we know of his budget plan, since he won't lay them out in detail, and this new statement that, oh, well, of course i'm going to fully fund fema. well, gee, what's he going to say today. of course he loves fema now. but he didn't love it when they were coming up with a budget plan. >> and to eugene's point, if mitt romney thinks he might get some solace from ryan, there's the paul ryan budget, which also slashes any amount, what is it, $23 million from the budget from fema? i mean, again, their actual plans would eviscerate provisions for the kind of plastic surge emergency that this nation is facing today. >> and very shortly, we're going to be discussing whether or not to raise the debt ceiling again. and debt ceilings get pushed out by these kinds of disaste
of defense. we talk with all the governors in the affected states as well as an awful lot of the mayors. i can tell you confidently that the federal government, state government, local government, they are doing everything in their power to coordinate relief as rapidly as we can do so many people who have been devastated by this storm. [applause] as tragic as it is, my mom, god rest her soul, she said, joe, out of something bad, something good will look --, if you look hard enough. my state of delaware was hit. it is a low-lying state. the hurricane went on shore about 30 miles from rehoboth to, in new jersey. my state, where my in-laws used to live, where my brothers and sisters live, they were hit pretty badly. i have a sister in law and family who live in ocean city, new jersey. you saw how badly they were hit. it is kind of amazing -- it is kind of amazing. a call yesterday with all the governors and mayors, it warmed my heart. you had the governor of delaware, the governor of connecticut, the governor of pennsylvania, democrats and republicans, and they were hurt. the governor of mary
still see things being somewhat defensive. i don't see anybody taking a highly leveraged position in stocks quite yet. >> and in terms of your base at wealth management at mohr dan stanley, are you seeing risk adversity or wanting them to get risk on trading? >> much more of the former. risk adversity. people wanting to stay defensive. they don't feel we have come out of the woods yet. the corporate confidence is low. consumer confidence has been building. auto sales -- our next number expecting 15 million annualized. people are buying things, but it's expected to be a much lighter retail sales number for the end of the year through the holidays. so you want to stay -- i agree with art. you want to stay with your dividend payers, your drug stocks. you want your johnson & johnson. you want your pfizer. you want your cokes, pepsis, colgates and these great technology companies. >> steve, do you think there's a sandy play to be had here at all in stocks whether it's energy, materials, retailers? i mean, pick your sector, if you think it's going to be affected. >> well, i think there
the final few days of the campaign that's right we mentioned wisconsin three times. playing defense there. ohio, six times in the final six days. that's a state the democrats look like they are up in the polls. why is the president spending so much time there it's a american fire wall for him if he can lock down ohio, wisconsin, as well as iowa. republic case on that is, look, he is playing defense in states he should have locked up oa while ago, the democratic response to all of that is why is mitt romney in virginia and florida states that the republicans thought they already had. >> shepard: ed life in las vegas. thanks very much. the new jersey officials say they will make special accommodation to make sure folks in the state can still cast their ballots. it's unclear how many of new jersey's 3,000 polling stations even have electricity or for that matter are still standing will state will extend the mail in county ballots county clerks office in all weekend. deploy military truck once tuesday and some of those truck also be used as mobile polling places. folks along the jersey shore
of shark attacks. >> gretchen: was it self defense or all out assault. gene hackman slapped a homeless man. he attacked the actor and the man called police that the hackman beat him up. cops said he acted in self defense and did not arrest him. >> steve: in new jersey, a beach goer spotted a deer that was stuck in the ocean and couldn't get back on the beach because of the barriers of rocks. the guy still went to the water and helped him out. excellent. >> gretchen: coming up. wrath of hurricane sandy not limited to new york and new jersey shores, what will she do to massachusetts? we'll take you there live after the break. >> the president promised federal help but should the feds be involved at all. do the governors need the president and waington to intervene. charles is next. stay top of mind with customers? from deals that bring them in with an offer... to social media promotions that turn fans into customers... to events that engage and create buzz... to e-mails that keep loyal customers coming back, our easy-to-use tools will keep you in front of your customers. see what's right for
. but i want to say something in defense of the hospital. i had a loved one in nyu hospital and that is an accident hospital. the staff everybody was wonderful. hospital. >> none of it is about the level of care. i know that the staff there are doing a great job. but i'm talking about the infra structure. >> they are set up the reason why the oil is in the basement new york has a history of black outs but it happens to the con-ed system and those were put there so that the hospitals when we have the black outs and the brown outs that they keep going there and they have. no one has experienced this and i want to point out that you say it it unprecedented. when he says it is unprecedented it is going to set the precedent. this is what we are going to see from here on out. that is what is changed here. this is not going to be a freak stint what happened here in new york and new jersey this week. we have been seeing crazy weather for the last few years. >> hold this thought. i want to get to this. for now, let me think allen. i appreciate you coming on. i think you know i was go
eventually take. but the most senior people of government worked on it. secretary of defense chairman of the joint cheats and secretary of state and senator john mccain looks at this and said clearly the administration acted this way to hide something. >> this is a classic scandal where almost every day and another shoe drops. i think it could be bad as water gate and one of our veterans said no one died in water gate. they have a point. >> yesterday white house press secretary jay carny said the president is anticipating the results of the f.b.i.'s investigation. back to you. >> gretchen: just to carry this story further. we saw the spokesperson for the state department said that the highest level of people were involved in this. i am not so sure that is a good admission to make. if the highest people were involved including the secretary of state and secretary of defense and possibly the vice-president and president, and all of this happened on their watch. i am not sure it is good to admit. >> steve: it is clrer and clearer that mistakes were made leading up to it and that night as
at it differently. and, you know, in a weird defense of mitt romney, in a weird defense of mitt romney, he was answering a deficit question there. he wasn't thinking about fema at all. >> right. in fact, he tried to dodge it a little bit. >> i think that's a really crucial because to me when i think about fema and disasters i'm absolutely confronted by these two americas, the katrina/fema reaction and the sandy/fema reaction and the reality is to argue there hasn't been a significant political response to the significance of fema by different governments and it's not split down party lines. it's simply not true. there was a really great article in "mother jones" that took you through -- >> the development of fema competence. >> right. and who had headed fema and the way that presidents had appointed those fema heads were directly related to how they perceived their significance. so, for example, george bush actually allocated michael brown who was the former -- i just had to read this out, because i was just blown away. michael brown who was the former commissioner of judges and stewards f
deploy whatever you have to do, protect our people, why did the secretary of defense leon panetta not get the memo and say we're not fire department. there are so many issues that the mainstream totally failed in a major story. >> i agree they failed but failed from the other side. c.i.a. officials gave us the time line within 24 minutes and it was outraged that the right wing media tried to play this card to hurt this president and play a game with lives of four americans. it's an outrage this is continued as a narrative. >> it's an outrage that those americans have died if in fact they could have been saved. >> they could have been saved. >> lime glad you know that. >> the administration -- >> let me finist >> i said last week there was canalbalism but this is more. whatever happens this election, they have to sort on the to get the blame. david petraeus has made it sure that it is not them. >> jon: we're going to answer more questions on this the next segment. the polls show what americans think but are the media paying attention? >> polls show americans care more about the economy and

[laughter] good one. we will read more of your responses in the next hour and post all of them on the front page of our website, wbaltv.com. >> looking on the bright side of sandy. things could have been worse. >> one thing you can do when you're stuck at home is watch a movie or two or 3. how many people call don netflix to kill some time. >> it is a big day to display all the carve pumpkins. >> i will let you know what you can expect for trick-or- treating. the seven-day forecast is coming up. >> looking better on the roads. it's oysternomics 101. you start with a u.s. senator named ben. by helping restore thousands of acres of oyster be

,000 defense jobs which in virginia are a key thing, not just for our national security, but a key thing for our economy. >> let's stick to taxes. let's stick to taxes here because one of the center pieces of romney's economic plan is the tax rate change, including for the wealthier, the job creators, but a recent report from the non-partisan congressional research service found no correlation between the cuts in the top tax rates and economic growth. congressional republicans railed against this report, as you're aware and under pressure the crs actually with drew it. now on the surface that sounds pretty bad so i want to give you a chance to defend the party. why did they basically kill this report? >> listen, i'm not actually familiar with that report, but i know the reports that have said that the president's tax increases will cost us 700,000 -- >> let me -- this is a report -- this is a report from a non-partisan group saying that the -- >> which they with drew. mish mcconnell's office said they had concerns -- they had concerns about methodology, that's coming from mitch mcconnell
, on national defense, and so, this poll sounds ectly that. and now that they've been spending 61,000, the amount they've spent is up 32 percent from 2008. basically say, here you go. it's not a way to provide incentives for people to get out and get jobs. on the contrary to provide incentives to get on the couch. >> it's seductive to give people the things, the problem in greece and now the problem with this administration, but charles, i think that was the calculus from the beginning, get more people beginning to receive a check and you saw this a couple of months ago, the wall street journal said half and half of people are getting a check from the government. they want people reliant. >> you know that phrase, don't bite the hand that feeds you, this is apropos. charles: and you hate to say it, and this is that 47% comment, i think this is what mitt romney was really trying to talk about at that particular point. a month ago, get a check in the mailbox might be unlikely to change that vote. thanks, guys. want to get to sandy quick and check with anna kooiman, on long island, ho

states that have been hotly contested and present the romney campaign opportunity to put obama on defense and have the offense ease the path to 270. very, very close, six days left, polls suggest everything is tight and no way to know who has the edge. so, no time for napping, either. >>shepard: i was hoping you got a nap while everyone else was working. >>carl: not a chance. romney is staying busy. >>shepard: thank you, carl cameron. massive gridlock around new york city, 4.3 million people use the subways and there is no subway. commuters returned to work and many are trapped if their homes. the national guard rescuest ahead, and, also, there were buses coming out of harlem and people waiting four hours and never getting a bus and the new york stock exchange re-opened today and they all back to work but it could take time to get trading back to normal. check in with the markets and get you updated at the bottom of the hour meaning the top of the news here. cover everything. only about 80% of your part b medical expenses. the rest is up to you. so consider an aarp medicare supplement ins

questions were -- in fact, alex can you pull the sound bite of chris christie getting a little bit defensive, i guess, about this all? because it seemed to me that those are two people doing what they are supposed to do. one on the left, one on the right, doesn't really matter, they're both doing what they're supposed to do, but yet at a time when new jersey is suffering its biggest crisis in probably decades and most of our lifetimes, he's getting a question that has him saying this? take a listen. >> and the president of the united states and i have now had six conversations since sunday. that shows to me a level of caring and concern and interest that i think a leadership should be given to this type of situation. this was as comfortable and relaxing an interaction as i've had with the president since i've known him. and i think it's because we're both doing what we want to do, which is to get things done. there will be some folks who will criticize me for complimenting him. well, you know what? i speak the truth. that's what i always do. sometimes you guys like it. sometimes you don't. s
't help somebody. >> i suppose all you could say it's possible in the defense in the chaos that was going on, clearly very frightening. if he thought it was a man throwing things at his house, in the fog of what was happening he merely realized but certainly the way you conducted the interview with him it seemed to me like he was hiding something. what is the reaction from the community as to what has happened there? >> reporter: well, our initial reaction was from the police on the scene. they told us off camera after they found the two bodies of the two children, one of the officers told me, i want this guy to be charged with a crime who wouldn't let this woman and her two children inside the house. now, it made us wonder, could you be charged with such a crime and what we found out from legal experts, it's not a crime not to help. it's an ethical problem, a moral problem but apparently you can't be charged criminally for such action. >> well, it certainly will happen, he did reject that lady and she went on to lose her two children. it's a crime against humanity. gary, for now, thank y
, i'm not going to play him, i'm going to be playing his defense. i would be compared to a guy like aaron rodgers, someone who has won super bowls. you want to win. that's our biggest goal and that's what this game is about. it's not about me versus cam w newt newton, it's about getting the win. >> does he ever say anything wrong? >> not yet. >> i think he went to some sort of media training. he says the perfect thing every time. >> i they have it's natural. >> he was playing college ball a year ago. >> he's just got it. >> he's so smart and everything he says is right on point. the redskins have lost their fair share of players on both sides of the ball, but the next man up mentality is alive and well. offensively, the loss of fred davis means unheralded logan paulson moved into the starting tight end role, something he never expected would happen. >> i thought my role was going to be a backup and spot duty and maybe a second string guy at some point and thankfully i'm here and this is my third season and i've been able to stick around. >> reporter: what is it that w logan brin

off. makes no sense at all. >> okay. here is his math. add $2 billion to defense budget, add $5 billion in tax cuts and get rid of fema. do you think that's a popular priority right now? >> i don't think it is. look at a state like north carolina. we saw earlier today that the north carolina outer banks have been run over by water and what about the federal flood insurance program that people out there take advantage of? not just fema and all the stimulus money and other federal project that is have developed that part of the country for all of us? you know, it's not just what he said at that debate. the ryan budget, which he endorses, would eviscerate fema and all these sort of programs. now, i know we don't want to play politics right now when it's a dangerous moment, but it's the type of thing that brings to question what he warrants to do versus what the president wants to do. >> i think this isn't a case of big bird, it's a case of big bath here. joy reid is also joining us. isn't it interesting how chickens come home to roost, things occur that teach people who they need g
, and the secretary of defense sit and watch what happened in real time and not send aid to those people, if everybody understood that is what happened. then they went out and made up a story that it was some unruly mob when it was clearly a planned attack by al qaeda. guest: i think there are a lot of problems with that. there were not watching in real time. i don't want to get into the specifics of the actual and got the attack or anything around it. however, i think there's something important to be done. the full story will be reported. there will be investigations both by the house of representatives and by the state department. republicans to control the house of representatives, by the way. we look forward to those things coming out. whether or not expect a robust surprise, and pretty sure it's not, i'm pretty sure most voters are not paying attention to it and are not taking a close look at it. we will see how it all plays out. -- i am pretty sure it is not the october surprise. host: there's the "washington times" -- guest: this is the nebraska senate seat and senator ben nelson is retiring.
like to wish it's 2008. the reality is they are forced to play some defense in more states that they once believed were safer for the president. the obama campaign is taking the threat seriously enough that they sent president clinton to minnesota tuesday. they're buying airtime in all three states that romney would like to make xcompetitive. but the president's campaign, they called romney's move desperate. in a video released yesterday, the race was framed to his volunteers this way. >> we are ahead or tied in every single battleground state. that means mitt romney has to win not only the tossups but a couple states where we have a clear lead to have any chance of winning the presidency. >> messina ran through the battleground states but explicitly did not mention michigan or minnesota. he says, quote, they are throwing money at states where they never built an organization and have been losing for two years. the romney campaign and its allies' decision to go up with advertising in michigan, pennsylvania, and minnesota is a decision made out of weakness not strength. well
